Horse whipped...haha. Yes, someone definitely needs a horse whipping!! The shipping agent says there is clearance around the trailer, visible I'm the pics. Is it just me or is he full of it?

I guess I missed the "clearance". Looks like they had to butter it to slide it in the box!

Haha, I have to laugh really. Or I'd cry. I will ask him today "how much do I owe you for the butter?" 😂

Mulligan, I was initially looking at RORO. He convinced me this was a better/cheaper option and was just as safe. I made a point of stressing the importance of the skin not being damaged and he was adamant that it would be fine. It would be carefully loaded, padded etc and would have about 100mm each side. (4 inches) Snug but safe...yeah. That was BS.

Even though we have never met, I am so excited for you! The closest I can imagine is waiting 2 months for my new truck to come across country on a big car hauling rig during horrible snow storms. It was super scary paying all cash for something, and hoping it matched the pictures! Enjoy your rig!

Your fine Amy. While the repair job looks intimidating...it really is not that bad. Many of those repairs are, essentially, on the same road your restoration would have been. If you take a look at some of the restoration postings you will see that. Ask questions here and help is immediately available....more than you probably need. But your with friends who have done it all. Get your camera out and lets begin....

I've just taken some more pics for the agent. If anyone has links for parts I'd appreciate it. Thank you all once again. Once this is all over I will start a new thread for the renovation. Hopefully sooner rather than later! xxx

Your freight company should be shot, even though ours was damaged I think flat rack is the better option. I did hear a story of an airstream arriving here in NZ in a container with not one straight panel. There is no room in that container what were they thinking grrrrrrrh

I agree! As I said, they talked me into it and assumed mention was a safe option. I trusted that they had more experience than me and went with it. All the while stressing the importance of the panels being safe. Lesson learnt. Pay a bit extra for peace of mind...
